The US-based Coca-Cola bottler, the country's largest, said late yesterday that net sales on a like-for-like basis came in 7% up in 2016 on the year before. In reported terms, sales jumped by 37%.

CCBC has spent the last three years growing its footprint in the US following The Coca-Cola Co's decision in late-2013 to separate its business and bottler arms in North America. Most recently, it added Cleveland to its distribution presence. "Since the first announcement of our territory expansion in 2013," said CEO Frank Harrison, "the company has nearly doubled its net sales to over $3bn in 2016."

On a comparable basis, CCBC said its 2016 volumes increased by almost 5%, with its still beverage portfolio rising by just under 12%. The sparkling stable was up 2.4% on 2015.

"We are pleased with the ongoing transition of new territories acquired during the past three years and the opportunities they provide ... future growth in both revenue and income from operations," said COO Hank Flint.
